International Journal of Indigenous Health

The International Journal of Indigenous Health (IJIH) is published bi-annually by the Aboriginal Health Research Networks Secretariat (AHRNetS) at the University of Victoria. This peer-reviewed online open-access journal was established to advance knowledge and understanding to improve Indigenous health. The journal seeks to bring knowledge from diverse intellectual traditions together with a focus on culturally diverse Indigenous voices, methodologies and epistemology.

We are pleased to share a collection of excellent papers, which span diverse countries, cultures, disciplines and critical health issues, with a particular focus on Indigenous ways of knowing, decolonizing methodologies, suicide prevention, food security, child malnutrition, health research ethics reform, and sexual health communication with youth. 

Naming History

The IJIH was re-named from its original name to reflect its growing international readership. It was previously known as the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) Journal of Aboriginal Health from 2004-2012. NAHO transferred the Journal to AHRNetS at the University of Victoria in 2012.
